Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A pretty much ideal big-screen adaptation of the material, which becomes convincingly cinematic. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"I doubt any director could have made a good movie from Andrew Lloyd Webber's baffling and shallow musical."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Intolerable"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"A brisk, involving, and highly entertaining spectacle."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Webber's music is hauntingly original and effective, while Rice's lyrics manage to convey the information that's missing without a standard narrative and scenic construction, while also incorporating a constant sense of interpretation."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"It is quite possible to hate Cats and deplore Sex and still enjoy this movie."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Don't cry for me Argentina, no please cry for me if I have to watch this one again."
‑ Kevin Fiddler, Henderson Home News (Henderson, NV)
"The problem is that Madonna's performance is all style. She mugs for the camera, but her acting is rarely convincing and her songs are one disappointment after another."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"At a time when songs showcased in movies were being shot as MTV music videos, leave it to director Alan Parker (The Commitments, Fame) to offer a full-blooded musical with epic elegance on its mind."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"What makes "Evita" so powerful is its ability to convey complex emotions through its music."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Alan Parker has a knack for musicals... even ones starring Madonna."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
